Samuel John Crawley Born March 1, 2012 7 lbs, 10.7 oz 20 inches long
I am not certain how long I was "in labor," but I got to the hospital between 8 and 8:30 a.m. on 3/1, and he was born at 2:35 p.m. All natural, although I broke down and asked my midwife to break my water at the very end (he was born within 5-10 minutes after that). But I was soooo ready for it to be over at that point! LOL!
I know, all this time, and I'm still only sharing the "short" details of his birth. I haven't written the actual story up, yet, although I hope to do it next week. Sorry I've been totally MIA...I've been on a "real" computer about three times since he was born, and that was only for about five minutes at a time. Otherwise, I've been on my Kindle Fire, which, for some bizarre reason, won't let me post on here from it.
Hope everyone is doing well! Samuel is asleep, so I'd better get myself to bed, as well...will seriously regret it if I don't. Belly pats, and I will catch up soon!
